What is a Giardinetti Ring?

in Engraved Rings and Wedding Bands

Naturally, not only quotes and Bible verses can be engraved on rings. Floral engravings are always popular in jewelry, and among them there is a design trend that has a technical name: giardinetti rings (giardinetto means “little garden” in Italian). These rings feature a setting that looks like a little basket of flowers. Popular in the mid XVIII century, giardinetti rings per se are primarily found in form of antique jewelery, but modern designs are reminiscent of the theme. They can be fashioned in a variety of styles techniques, engraving being one of them.
